People Let Me Tell You Bout My Best Friend

Best Friend I never thought that I would be friends with a two year old. I didn’t even know what that could possibly look like until recently. When I was younger, my dad would always refer to me as his best friend. I thought, “Creeper.” That didn’t make any sense to me. You had to be pretty lonely to have a kid as your best friend. Clearly our relationship was one sided [evil laugh]. Actually, my dad was pretty cool. We hung out and talked regularly. He was a very…

Trump on Education

Trump Appoints Donald Trump will likely choose Betsy DeVos to be his education secretary. Of course, people are losing their minds. In fact, most of my friends go crazy whenever Trump adds someone to his cabinet. For me, DeVos is another reason to shrug my shoulders. She’s the new person that will throw money into education, showing no concern for our future or our youth. I Give No Cares Things weren’t going to change under Hilary. And I know this might not be the popular thing to say, but our…

Welcome to the Matrix

You are in The Matrix. I’m not even talking about a hypothetical or metaphorical sense. I’m literally referring to the movie, The Matrix. You are in The Matrix, whether you accept this truth or not depends entirely on you, but let me help with your awareness of your surroundings. The Matrix contains two “realities.” One is, in fact, a dream world. In this world, machines use your energy to survive or thrive. Neo, or President Obama, has been perceived as The One. People believed that he would bring about a…

Black Alchemy Hero – Lost

I can’t say that I learned much from writing this chapter. I’m presently on chapter 20 (I believe) of Cullinan Diamond Hunter and Leonardo and Kode have yet to interact. I intend to add more depth to their relationship and make fewer references to Barcode. 8 – LOST Kode and Leonardo hike up a long, muddy path. Fallen branches and large stones make the road difficult to navigate, but the men move quickly, like soldiers trained to endure these conditions. They travel through complete darkness with the sounds of various creatures…

If I Had Superpowers

There’s an age old question that goes: If you had superpowers, what would it be? Bruh. That’s a near impossible question to answer with certainty. In order to go about breaking down this question, I’d have to choose between my top three superpowers. Time Control Teleportation Mind Control From here, I’ve considered the pros and cons of each. Time Control Pros The ability to “do over.” Eternal life (if my powers advance far enough) The ability to protect anyone at any time. Wealth. Cons Unwillingness to experience life “as is.” Perfectionist…

You Make Me Hate My Job

I’m just going to vent via words… Professionalism is swiftly becoming a thing of the past. I’m noticing more women unaware of what appropriate work attire looks like (leggings, low cut shirts, tight fitting clothing, etc.) I’m noticing more men unaware of what appropriate work attire looks like (no tie, no collared shirts, large clothing, etc.) I don’t mind it. Once upon a time, lack of professionalism pissed me off, but I’m beginning to embrace it. I just want this “structure” to completely collapse, so things get absolutely ridiculous. I want…

Reality and Expectations in Education

I think I’m starting to hate being a teacher, and my hatred didn’t spawn from some unknown underworld without warning. Nope. This has been a long time coming. I’ve worked in more schools than the average teacher (with my limited experience): Two elementary schools Two middle schools One high school. Positions I’ve held: School teacher Teacher’s aid Library assistant Tutor Computer instructor History teacher English teacher I’ve done pretty much everything shy of administration, though I’ve taken on some administrative roles at a few charters. With my experience, I’ve come to…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Truth

The Yellow Diamond Hunter series was meant to have a lot of comedy. I don’t know where I lost that along the way. This chapter was my intent to really bring back the comedy. Yet again, I chose a more “cheesy superhero” route, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I’d probably sell a lot more books and make more money, but I just don’t care for this style too much. It’s way too predictable in my eyes. I’ve taken a more organic route recently. Just two days ago, I wrote Chapter…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Obstacles

Here, I united all parties and made an uncomfortable situation for Sol. I decided to avoid this altogether in the remake. For Cullinan Diamond Hunter, I’ve decided to keep the stories separate. Julius does his thing while Sol independently meets with Greer. This produces a more organic relationship. Also, I really didn’t like how I remade Absolute. I actually love how it was remade, but Greer is really attached to Absolute, so to have him pack up and rebuild was a bit out of character. I’m presently working on keeping…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Blind Trust

There’s not much to say here. Rereading this chapter made me realize that it didn’t hold much of a purpose. I will definitely have to work on giving each scene a purpose from here on. 6 – BLIND TRUST Thousands of people wait impatiently outside of Ordinance. Twice per year, the province practices fleeing the province. The citizens know to regroup in safe zones just outside of the main city, but no one is happy to endure their first real life drill in seven years. This area is under twenty-four…
